LONG BEACH, Calif. – Women’s Basketball Head Coach Amy Wright was invited to participate in the exclusive NCAA Women’s Basketball Champion Forum this past week in Indianapolis, Indiana.


                Sponsored by the NCAA, the invitation-only event is hosted by Jon Oliver of JKO Solutions. Over the course of a week at the home of the NCAA, the forum prepares aspiring Division I assistant coaches to make the leap one seat over and take over leadership of a program as a head coach.


                Wright, a participant as an assistant in 2021, was asked to return and lead the “Chalk Talk” for the five participants nationally chosen to take part in the forum.


                “It was an honor and a privilege to return to Indiana for this exclusive programs,” said Wright. “Jon Oliver and DeeDee Merrit do an outstanding job of putting coaches in the ‘hot seat’ to prepare them for real life professional situations. This is a week that the participants will truly grow from.”


                The panel Wright was on this year featured other Division I head coaches, search firms, message articulation consultants and the NCAA Women’ Basketball Rules Committee chair.
